snack food

Popcorn is a snack food made by heating certain kinds of corn. There is a small amount of water inside the seeds, which causes them to explode. When the seed shell breaks a sharp noise is made. The name "pop" is because of this noise. After it pops it is white and fluffy.

Popcorn is a popular food to eat at the cinema.

Kernel chokingEdit

Many accidents of choking on popcorn kernels were reported.[1] This is because the popcorn kernel does go into the airway and throat, and gets stuck. Many people want other people to take kernels out of the popcorn for children.[2]
